Some things in life are very precious. And if you are given something special to watch over, you must do your best to protect it always.
Kaveh is a young man who finds himself without a home after his father the king dies and leaves him nothing but a golden hen, while his brothers receive the castle and other riches. Kaveh soon learns that the hen was a greater prize than he could have imagined: it contained a magical ring that brings a powerful being, Super Giant, to his service. So begins Kaveh’s new life, as Super Giant helps fulfill his wishes, great and small, as Kaveh tries to win the hand of Princess Kiana in marriage.
Can Kaveh find ever-lasting happiness with Princess Kiana, Super Giant, and his mouse friend, Jolly? Or will he take the magical ring for granted, not realizing that others will do anything to make it their own? Kaveh, Jolly, and the Super Giant is a delightful tale exploring the magic of wishes, the strength of love, and the importance of keeping your word and being mindful of your treasures.
